The French Connection
The area's modern-day history began in the mid-1700s, when it became a refuge for French Catholics from Nova Scotia who sought religious freedom and a safe place to maintain their culture, lifestyle and sense of community. Ultimately, they fled to Louisiana, which was Catholic. It was also under French and Spanish rule at the time. These residents were referred to as Acadians which eventually evolved into "Cajun" and our region is now home to the culture and history of Zydeco music, Mardi Gras celebrations, and Louisiana seafood and spicy cooking!
